Vegan Football (Soccer) Club in The UK

Did you know that the England-based Forest Green Rovers Football Club (that we might also know as "soccer")—a professional football club of the National League—is 100 percent vegan? Yep, and it is because of the club chairman, mister Dale Vince. "Thanks to Vince, the club has been fully vegan since June 2014. That means no meat, fish, dairy, or other animal products of any kind...at the club, whether for players, visitors, or fans," notes a feature about Vince on the UK's Independent. A vegan and long time eco advocate, Vince explained his passion for providing healthy food to the football players. Surprisingly, or maybe not, the gradual transition has gone quite smoothly. Very cool, Vince!

English Pro Soccer Team & Club Goes Vegan

The Internet went wild last week as the news that English soccer (A.K.A football) team, the Forest Green Rovers, announced that the entire team and club is going completely vegan.

"We stopped serving meat to our players, fans and staff about four seasons ago," said club owner Dale Vince (via a recent article on Edition.CNN.com). He continued, "We've been on a mission since then to introduce our fans to this new world." The article explains that while the club has been vegetarian for the past few years, they've decided to take the next step in going fully vegan (including their beer and cider options). Also cool to know: the club's field is organic and they collect rainwater to use for irrigation. This is seriously super cool, you guys. Keep it up!
